River Adventures (Slovenia). 'Rarely does a river beckon to be rafted as convincingly as Slovenia’s Soča. Maybe it’s that piercing sky-blue-bordering-on-green colour of the water, or the river’s refreshing froth and foam as it tumbles down the mountains. Even if you’re not the rafting type, you’ll soon find yourself strapping on a wetsuit for that exhilarating ride of the summer.' www.lonelyplanet....
